CIRS


 

ABOUT

Center for Infrastructure Research and Services (CIRS, NSU) can offer access to University’s state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and facilities to companies of all sizes of a wide range of testing and analysis services. The high quality specialized equipment, machinery and tools can be hired with or without academic expertise whichever suits to your project. The services which we offer reflect the breadth and depth of University’s research capabilities, from independent testing services to collaborative prototype generation. We have expert technicians, servicemen and stuffs under the direct supervision of faculty members to carry out the tests and analysis.   CIRS undertakes research, testing and consultation works in the field of engineering, architecture and planning as required by private, government or autonomous bodies.
